Dani Siciliano

American-born Londoner Dani Siciliano is best known as the voice behind most of longtime partner in life and music Matthew Herbert's best work, including 2001's Bodily Functions and 2006's Scale. But on 2004's Likes and this follow-up, Siciliano proves adroit behind the boards as well as behind the microphone. The highlights on Slappers are plentiful, including the spooky "Frozen," the glitchy (and tongue-in-cheek) "Be My Producer" and the galloping "Why Can't I Make You High," which along with Basement Jaxx's "Take Me Back to Your House" seems to point toward 2006's weirdest electronic-dance trend, the incorporation of country music.
